Excellent signals on 6 MHz in mid-afternoon

On Wednesday afternoon July 13 2011 I was in the Hamer Arboretum, Olinda,
some 40 km east of central Melbourne.

It was a bitterly cold overcast bleak day - I set up the Eton E5 and a
3 m antenna at the junction of Silvan and Mathias Rds, just down from the
Woolrich Lookout.

I was astonished at the excellent signals between 0500 and 0530 on 6
MHz, with may longpath signals from Europe, Africa and Europe, and
shortpath from the Americas.

This is my report:
